are going to make george bush the president of the now for quite a while, and we will continue that. 1/2eally only have 1 political parties in the country now. there is a misreading of the republican party in terms ofthe fact of the matter is republican party is the dominant political party from 1978 until the summer party ran outhe of gas in the summer of 2005, the effects of the war, katrina, where people would say, what is wrong withthey have had seven or eight years now where republicans are roaming around in terms of their future, and now thannot closer they were then. political parties cannot fix the problem of a party, but they have to avoid becoming a liability. the job of the political party is to make a flat playing field, so the future of either party will determine who the nominee is and the next president is. until republicans take the white house back, they will be defined as a congressional party, the tea party, great for us, and whoever is the craziest person gets on tv and gets the attention -- that will not change for the next three years. is in charge of the republic
, because they have been associated with us in the battle is going to be very, very close between bush and major and there is going to be an exchange between the united states and germany which did little to nothing. >> what are you saying? >> i said major and george bush are going to be great friends. >> okay. >> you were right on all three accounts. what did you say? >> george bush by doing so well in the war, which he is going to win quickly will reelect himself. he will not have a republican challenger, pat is not going to run. >> jack? >> a year from now about the time of the first caucus of the primaries, the middle east and this war will be no more than a tenth on the list of issues or concerns to americans. >> so what do you think? >> i think i was wrong twice. when i said we would not run. i said bush would be reelected. pat ran. bush was not reelected. to this day, pat buchanan still sits in the chair. >> right. >> and as long as we are on that. zuckerman, you know, most people don't know, he is in real estate. >> well, yeah, he also owned "u.s. news" and "the new york daily
after screwing things up. george bush celebrated by going to his local dennys dressed in a flight suit and ordering the grand slam breakfast. people have signed a petition objecting to comments on that c in my n perceived as sympathetic to the steubenville rapist. there is a number any rapist can call if they feel the stress. phillip roth is 80 and bob dylan's album was released 51 years ago today. if you're angry about the iraq anniversary, we're all 56 now. ♪ theme ♪ >> i'm john fugelsang. ten years ago the invasion of iraq began. we all know what followed, zambrano hussein's regime was top would u.s. troops found themselves in a quagmire as civil war broke out. the u.s. adopted a counter insurgency strategy. whether it really succeeded is till a matter of intense debate. there is no debate that it prepared the ground for a u.s. pullout, allowing president obama's spokesman jay carney to remind reporters today that this president fulfilled his promise to end the war. >> he fill filled that promise in a way that allowed iraq to have the best possible chance to provide for a better
florida governor jeb bush argues that the nation's immigration policy should be overhauled to reflect our current economic needs, but also should be b clear enough to enforce properly. this is a little under an hour. [applause] >> now, our love whered president finish beloved president ronald reagan passed away almost ten years ago. but as many in this audience know, it seems nearly impossible to follow political news without hearing some reference to our 40th president. his memory, his name and, fortunately, his legacy seem to be ubiquitous as our country grapples with the challenges of our time. for many years, probably starting with the day after president reagan left office in 1989, there's been a famous question often asked when this is a particularly vexing problem facing our country. you've likely heard it before. we, the questioners often ask, well, what would reagan do? it's a good question to ask, because while times and technology and many faces have changed since president reagan was in office, some important fundamentals, those that speak to who we are as americans, have not.
passionate minority. i was there from the start. i can remember marching, urging president bush to stop the war. i can still remember comforting anti-war activists like cindy sheehan. i met her near president bush's texas ranch. at camp casey. named for her son. he was killed in action in the war. from day one, i didn't agree with the invasion of iraq. but i always knew how important it was to support our troops. especially when they came home. the president talked about it in his state of the union. >> we will keep faith with our veterans. investing in world class care, including mental health care. for our wounded warriors. supporting our military families. giving our veterans the benefits and education and job opportunities that they have earned. >> over 1.1 million americans served in iraq, and over 32,000 returned home with severe combat wounds. it's a big reason why 45% of veterans from iraq and afghanistan are seeking disability assistant. it's a staggering number. the wait time for that help is even worse. on average, it's over 300 days for our newest veterans. our veter
. i saw this one, the war in iraq coming from the first days after 9/11. there were those in the bush administration who saw this as their opportunity. they were helped by war hawks on the outside. the "washington post" op-ped page, the "weekly standard," the new republic" were open billboards for the relentless push toward war. establishment media joining in offering uncritical coverage of the administration line. this is not a good statement about the american press. i'd like to believe my generation, especially those who grow up in maturity to the horror of dishonesty of vietnam would have spoken loudly against the war hawks. few, mostly on the left, did. fewer from the middle. still fewer from the right. what's worse than that in those months of late 2001, 2002, and early 2003 to oppose the war when there was time to stop it, worse yet, the question is motivation, to cause trouble for yourself. even when a whole new vocabulary, wmd, homeland, regime change, freedom fries, coalition of the willing, was being confected and infiltrated into our national dialogue. the mainstream media
. >> reporter: president bush did something never done before. greeted the pope. he told reporters on board that he still has trouble understanding how catholic priests could have molested american children. >> i'm deeply ashamed and can't believe this is possible that this can happen in future. >> reporter: the church has paid out more than $2 billion to settle the cases. >> it's good that there's as many good priests as bad priests. >> reporter: but a man told us the pope's word are not enough. >> despite his apology today that he's going to pray and try to stop it he's continuing to put accused predators in ministry because they haven't been convicted. >> reporter: joey piscateli from s.n.a.p. says some accused priests haven't been convicted because of the statute of limitations. as for the pope meeting president bush. >> i think it's just a political photo op is what they're doing. president bush if you look at his record has done absolutely nothing about the sex abuse crisis. >> s.n.a.p. has much to be angry about because i think we as a church ha
killed this morning in explosions across iraq. that's exactly ten years after then president bush announced the u.s. invasion. most of today's attacks were car bombings around baghdad, including one near major government offices and foreign embassies. we're still getting information in on that in terms of casualties and injuries. elizabeth, you first, ten years later, where are we? well, it's a very difficult anniversary. no one remembers this fondly at all. the iraqis certainly don't remember this well. they're not marking this anniversary at all. i also think that the war changed fundamentally the way the united states thinks about war. look at how reluctant the president is right now to intervene in syria in a serious way. look at how reluctant the pentagon was to go to war to intervene in libya. look at how long the afghanistan wars lasted because of what happened in iraq. we're in a very sober place right now. also, we have to remember, nearly 5,000 american men and women killed in uniform killed as a result of this war. i should also -- i should also tell you, i am at this p
jerry saltz will analyze the bush brush. >>> we begin tonight with two men on opposite sides of gun safety reform. both claiming they represent the will of the people. new york city mayor michael bloomberg expressed confidence on "meet the press" that meaningful reform is on the horizon. >> i am cautiously optimistic. i think, when you have an issue where 90% of the public, 80% of nra members, even, say that they think we should have reasonable checks before people are allowed to buy guns, they all support the second amendment, as i do. but there are an awful lot of people that think that this is one of the great issues of our times. we have to stop -- >> yet nra executive vice president, wayne lapierre, is convinced that his organization is looking out for america's best interests, while bravely fighting off a challenge from the nanny state and its nanny mayor. >> he's going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people. and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restau
today in president bush's book "decision points" he says he wished he had done immigration before social security, because he thinks there would have been bipartisan support for it before he tried. but it failed mostly because harry reid called a cloture vote. over, some of the issues take a long time to marinate. that that as people thought it through, i think they realize it's not having a good comprehensive immigration policy is hurting us economically and it's not the right thing to do. it's time to solve it. i admire everyone for coming to the table. but i want to make a point. what rand paul is saying is contrast to gang of eight. his idea is security first, legalization and then citizenship. gang of eight put forward legalization, security and then citizenship. that seems like you could find a compromise, but that is a big leap between security and legalization piece and flipping them. >> andrea: what do you think, eric? >> eric: rand paul opened up a can of whoop-ass on the hill and they were flooded with calls say dog you care to weigh in on rand paul's idea? he threw people for
accepting of what the bush administration was claiming. so a good example would be, and not everybody is as discerning as you are, a good example, front page story in "the washington post," use that as an example, could be anybody else. today president bush said saddam hughes and is working with al qaeda. he is here, this is the story, and they quote an unnamed analyst because they can't speak openly, who would say we have no evidence to back this up. >> and i would seize on that. >> you would seize on it, put on a show if you have a show at the time. but the general thrust of the matter is you worked in congress, you know that a lot of congressmen and senators don't get past the headlines, we should take what bush says with more weight. the thrust of the story should have been president bush said something, contradicted by his own government and that should have been the lead, the fact he was saying something that wasn't proven. again and again and again. colin powell, that speech he gave february 5th, 2003, everyone remembers that, you know -- >> swayed a lot of people. >> swayed a
, is that the bush administration really did believe that saddam was pursuing weapons of mass destruction. so did the c.i.a. and their view is that the sanctions that had been hemming him in were beginning to fray.ee and you know there's been a lot of journalism saying the intelligence was concocted. it was actually worse than that. it was not concocted. >> rose: it was just wrong. >> it was just wrong, and it waw not only wrong during the bush administration, it was wrong during the clinton administration. if you look at theti intele the very end of president bill clt's administration, they were talking also about saddam building up his w.m.d.s. >> rose: what was the error ofwa intelligence? why did they believe that? >> it was a tbawrl off imagination-- it was a failure of imagination. i was writing about the intelligence at the time and i myself thought some of it might have been valid when i was writing about it. really what happened is saddam cooperated with a letter of the united nations demands. he let inspectors go here and there, but he never cooperated with the spirit of it. and he was
of cultivating the patience to see burning bushes. the idea being that if moses had been called from god and the burning bush today, he would have just walked right by it because his cell phone would have rang. so one of the things that we work on a lot out here is just reminding people to just slow down and just be fully present noticing this amazing environment. our seder has most of the elements of a traditional seder but, ironically, we've taken the "seder," which means "order," out of the seder. we hike a mile and a half up to the seder, we do some teachings along the way. and then we have the first part of the seder underneath the arch. >> on all other nights, we eat leavened bread or matzah. why on this night only matzah? >> one of the practices that we do that's very unusual, is we read the story of the exodus directly from the scroll, from the torah scroll. we're trying to take this spiritually rich experience that people have out here and ignite their judaism. >>as we look back and hold on to the tradition, the story, that we come from, it's also our responsibility to continue
wrong, and it waw not only wrong during the bush administration, it was wrong during the clinton administration. if you look at theti intele the very end of president bill clt's administration, they were talking also about saddam building up his w.m.d.s. >> rose: what was the error ofwa intelligence? why did they believe that? >> it was a tbawrl off imagination-- it was a failure of imagination. i was writing about the intelligence at the time and i myself thought some of it might have been valid when i was writing about it. really what happened is saddam cooperated with a letter of the united nations demands. he let inspectors go here and there, but he never cooperated with the spirit of it. and he was trying to maintain ambiguity over what he actually had. because he was concerned, first and foremost biran, which doesan have w.m.d., and he was trying to repress his own population. he had used poison gas against the kurds. he didn't want internal factions to know he didn't have it. he maintained a big of ambiguity about it. and even hans blinx wrote he thought he must be having
retroactively. and george bush and dick cheney and condoleezza rice are still around. in terms of how we get right with this as a country, the accountability can't just be personal about the decision makers. it has to be about telling the story honestly about what happened so that they, like nixon, don't get away with it in the long run the way they got away with it in the short run, so we tell the story correctly and honestly, so it's not dismissed as a conspiracy theory by generations hence by americans who can't believe something this evil would happen in our country. it did. we need to teach it that way and learn it that way if we want to have any hope of it not happening again. in american politics there were plenty of democrats who went with the iraq war ten years ago, who believed it, and made it more convincing by virtue of their democratic endorsement. on the democratic side that at least as since become a source of shame. it's a strike against you in democratic politics. it's part of the reason we have a president named president obama who was not part of that mess and not hillary
, whether it is mr. bush, mr. cheney, anyone who served in war would've known right off the bat or should have known these guys never served in war and we got the outcome that we did. host: you served in the first gulf war? correct. caller: there were two different strategies. the first, the iraqi invasion of kuwait. a country about the size of new jersey. over 700,000 troops to kick them out of the country. 500,000 of those troops were coalition troops. you are talking a whole different ballgame when you are talking about removing an army from a country as opposed to invading and occupying. those are two different kettles of fish. host: veteran from ohio. brenda in memphis, tennessee. i make aes, may comment first? . am a former u.s. marine i was a staff sergeant during the vietnam era. i want to say this much. they are talking about us going when our country is struggling. they want to cut support on social security. if you look at the ryan budget, it is a budget that is totally on steroids against the poor. i don't understand why we don't rebel -- now, let's talk about iraq. iraqi is a
couple of years? especially as you have folks like jeb bush and chris christie. trying to move the country to more moderate and progressive in the lower-case "p" sense of the word. >> in covering ron paul, who of course rand paul is going to inherit the energy and enthusiasm from ron paul, you saw the biggest crowds, the most diverse crowds and the youngest crowds. that's what rand paul is going to capitalize on. should he run and it looks like he will run. i think over the last months and weeks you've seen obviously a split between the establishment and the tea party folks. rubio can't decide which one he is. rand paul, however, is very, i think solid and comfortable with his brand and who he is. it's part of ron paul, he's modified a little bit in terms of foreign affairs and international affairs. but i think he is a comer and folks in the republican party i talk to really like him. they think he's the person who can really intellectualize a tea party in the way that ron paul couldn't. he was a little meandering on the stump. they like what they see in terms of rand paul. an
, too many on the right still don't get it. ten years ago tonight president bush announced the u.s. had started bombing iraq. he did this despite the millions of us who marched in the streets demanding that he stop beating the drums of war. the bush administration sold the war using the worst kinds of falsehoods and fearmongering. >> but we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud. >> the checks alleged that the attacker met in prague with a senior iraqi intelligence official. >> iraq recently sought significant quantities of uranium from africa. >> bush and his crew misled america about virtually every aspect of this war. >> my belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators. >> we're dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction and relatively soon. >> in the battle of iraq, the united states and our allies have prevailed. >> mission accomplished turned into a national tragedy. with unimaginable costs. nearly 4,500 americans were killed in the war. over 32,000 americans were wounded. left maimed or crippled by bush's war. in 2002 before the war be
.s. launched a war in iraq. here's how george w. bush broke the news on march 19th, 2003. >> my fellow citizens, at this hour, american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm iraq and free its people and defend the world from grave danger. >> within a month, baghdad had fallen, but the war dragged on. casualties spike in subsequent years and in early 2006, the bombing of a mosque led to a wave of sectarian violence. president obama vowed an exit strategy to fulfill a promise and ended the mission before christmas, 2011. richard engle was there. >> after invasion, a civil war and a surge and a training mission, for the first time, u.s. military command no longer has a presence here in iraq. this is now a sovereign nation. >> richard spent eight years in iraq. he is in another key part of the region in israel. he is waiting for president obama who arrives in jerusalem tomorrow morning. good morning. >> good to be with you. >> i want to ask you, we sit here ten years later and you spent a tremendous amount of time in that part of the world. what is our standi
was wrong. he was wrong then and now. of course deficits matter, but any one of you who supported the bush plans has no right to speak. i helped bill clinton balance the budget and build a surplus. why? because we had good economic times. in good economic times, you pay down the deficit, but reagan and bush did not, and in bad you have to stimulate in the near term, as thank god president obama is doing. we democrats will balance the budget once again. >> paul, which is more important to america's pursuit of happiness -- which is more dangerous, excuse me, than a 357 magnum -- >> in my home you would find 17 guns and no cans of soda pop. i have the right wing position on the giant drink soda thing. i do not like the idea, and i think bloomberg is a fine man, but i do not like government telling us what size to buy today. this one, i am with tucker and most of you. i have the right wing position on gun safety. i have the same position as ronald reagan, who was for a waiting period before you buy a gun. i have the same position as the president of the nra before he flip-flopped in the last f
of the last 11 presidents, bush, clinton, carter and nixon, visited israel during their presidencies. both nixon and bush waited until their second term to make their trip. >>> so enough with the real news. let's gather round the water cooler with lewis. what have you got for us? >> we've never done this together. >> making tv history right now. >> did you have a good st. patrick's day weekend? >> it was nice, low-key. >> no guinness, no green beer? >> just the shot of the empire state building, green this morning. i forgot to wear green. what about you? >> i had a great time. >> you're still here early. >> yes. >> looking fresh, ready to go. >> here we go. the first story, the race is on in new york to replace three-term mayor michael bloomberg. there's over a half dozen candidates, even former congressman anthony weiner is exploring a bid. there's interest coming from the west coast, twitter co-founder jack dorsey is thinking about throwing his hat in the ring. the 36-year-old billionaire told "60 minutes" he's serious about moving to new york and running for mayor. >> what i love about
anniversary of the invasion of iraq. a war that was ordered by president george w. bush, a war that the current president has said should never have been authorized. but in marking the anniversary, the president issued this statement. "we honor the memory of the nearly 4,500 americans who made the ultimate sacrifice to give the iraqi people an opportunity to forge their own future after many years of hardship." for the latest, let's go to nbc's kristen welker live for us at the white house. senators lindsey graham and john mccain have just issued a statement warning that if the use of chemical weapons is verified, then the united states must take immediate action. i have to ask you, kristen, how is the white house responding to these disturbing reports out of syria? >> reporter: well, they are quite concerned about the reports out of syria, martin, and i have to tell you, there are still a lot of question marks. the white house making the point that they are looking into the allegations that chemical weapons were used in syria. as you pointed out, the government is pointing fin
beginning we created the balanced budget act of 1997 and it was during the bush years of spending multiplied now by the obama years that we have the mess. my difficulty with the tea party freshmen isn't the true passion. they are an important part of the republican party. at the end of the day you have to govern. just saying no doesn't get you anything and create these falls crises. you can get past the false crises if you work something out. it doesn't mean sur renning principle. working together in a way that you get 60% of what you want. >> you have to go back. i don't think the tea party has created the budget crisis. we came in with members and tried to do something about it. i remember a day when april 15 is when the house and senate had to pass a budget resolution. i remember when they had to reconcile the 13 appropriations bills and a day when the president actually had to introduce his budget and today we don't do any of that stuff and that is how we got to the $16 trillion and there is something rational about standing on the tracks and saying we can't do this any more we have to d
priebus is standing by live this hour. >>> ten years after the invasion of iraq, a bush white house insider is here to reveal the secrets of how america was spun into war. >>> and from gop power broker to cable news kingmaker, a new book pulls back the veil on the controversial fox news boss, roger. we want to welcome our viewers from the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> in an extraordinary look inward, republicans think they figured out what went wrong back in november. dissecting the election defeat, the gop has found that it is viewed as narrow-minded, out of touch, and full of stuffy old men. one calls for major changes in style and strategy, but how do they go about repairing a deeply divided party? cnn's brianna keilar is here in "the situation room," and she's taking a closer look at this report and fascinating material inside. >> fascinating material inside, and one of the things we're seeing in the republican party, what it's planning to do, is invest some serious money to build the republican brand in areas that are
all believed as a country was there. and then former bush speechwriter david frum wrote in "the daily beast" this week if the war achieves positive gains it is unnecessary costs in human life, money, to the prestige and credibility of the u.s. government are daunting and dismaying if we found the wmd it would have been different. it totally would have been different but we didn't. >> sure. right. >> so are the american people more likely to question the challenge of this country being capable and on a proper premise to go into war? >> absolutely. i mean, those poll numbers that you cited way back when, ten years ago, were reflective of what the american people were told by its government, by its president, its secretary of state, its secretary of defense. the case was made for going to war with iraq. you know, in a time of war the american people rally around the president. but as more information came out, as more facts and corrections of the record came out, the american people saw that they were in essence lied to about getting into a war, not one of necessity but one of choice. an
want to play a comment made earlier about mitt romney and former bush foreign adviser dan senor on "morning joe." >> i think what's striking about this trip, he's coming to israel without a plan. most american presidents who have shown up in israel, clinton went four times. >> right. >> bush went in 2008. they went in a moment that they were on the cusp of israeli -- >> and the president's coming to close a deal. >> ambassador, i'll have you hold that thought because i'm going to take you right now to the president who is being introduced. they are inside the residence there of shimon peres. let's take a listen to both gentlemen speak. >> president obama, it is a great privilege for me and for the people of israel to host you here in jerusalem. it was a real pleasure to sit with a true friend, very knowledgeable, unfortunately, and see that we can agree and discuss with you openly and freely. after the meeting we just had, i am with more confidence that your vision can be transformed the middle east. your vision is achievable. you arrived here already with an impressive record o
's talking points memo. it was 10 years ago that president bush launched an attack on iraq. >> operation iraqi freedom has begun and the pentagon says saddam hussein's days are numbered. i'm shepard smith. this is the fox report on fox news channel and tonight on fox stations from coast to coast. bombs and crews mistles rained down on baghdad for a second night in a row. and saddam's main presidential palace taking a direct hit. saddamecess saddam hussein's family home got hit as well. >> bill: that marked eight long years of conflict in iraq. almost 4500 americans dead. more than 32,000 wounded. almost a trillion dollars spent. was it worth it? many liberals say no. some conservatives say yes. the "wall street journal" today supporting the war in iraq on its editorial page. of course, the "new york times" thinks it was foolish. no matter what you think. the iraq war has changed america. we now have a 17 trillion-dollar debt. and obviously iraq contributed to that we also have thousands of wounded warriors. the country must take care of. and we have an ideological battle over how to deal
